  • Patent number: 10846715
    Abstract: An energy operation system, apparatus, and method capable of stably supplying energy and providing adjustment control based on prediction precision and planning precision for energy supply and demand. An energy operation apparatus includes a demand predictor, planner, evaluator, and solution quality controller. The demand predictor predicts demand and/or a power generation amount of future energy in a management area. The planner prepares a future energy supply plan in the management area based on a prediction. The evaluator evaluates supply and/or demand conditions including at least one of future weather in the management area, energy demand in the management area, a demand density and/or a generation density of future energy in the management area. The solution quality controller controls the quality of at least one of a prediction solution of the demand predictor and the energy supply plan of the planner based on an evaluation result from the evaluator.

  • Publication number: 20190225195
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a mover including a plurality of wheels, a body, and a friction braking mechanism. The body has a bottom surface. The body is supported by the plurality of wheels with the bottom surface facing a traveling surface, and travels on the traveling surface by turning the plurality of wheels. The friction braking mechanism applies a brake on the body with at least a portion of the bottom surface or at least a portion of a movable body brought into contact with the traveling surface by switching, while the body is traveling, a state of the movable body from a first state into a second state. The second state is a state where the movable body protrudes from the bottom surface to a different height from in the first state.

  • Publication number: 20190098972
    Abstract: A shopping basket includes a main basket body configured to store a product therein and a bottom part attached to the main basket body to open and close a lower opening of the main basket body. When the bottom part closes the lower opening, the main basket body and the bottom part constitute an internal space which is surrounded by the main basket body and the bottom part and which communicates with the upper opening and the lower opening, and allow the internal space to store the product therein. When the bottom part opens the lower opening, the lower opening allows the product to be taken out of the internal space through the lower opening. When moving a product to a container, a user is not required to lift and take out the products one by one from an upper opening of the shopping basket.
